On Veterans Day weekend across Metro Atlanta, thousands paid tribute to those who have served our country. Parades, ceremonies, luncheons and balls took place across the region. All veterans, both young and old, were honored for their service. Many employers recognized veteran staff members for their time served. Local schools sent handmade cards to veterans, and individuals took the time to say “thank you”. On behalf of Metro Atlanta, we thank all veterans for your service. We celebrate you each and every day.
